Local councillors and residents visited Leeds’ Brodetsky Jewish Primary to officially open three new building projects. A specially constructed nature teaching area known as the Outdoor School was dedicated to Sam Gitlic by his family, who had funded the £10,000 facility in his memory. Mr Gitlic came to Britain as a refugee on the Kindertransport, aged 13. He was taken under the wing of the Lawrence family of Leeds.
